Can't your s/w export to WAVs? This is the best way for you to go... export to WAV file format. My old copy of Samplitude Pro version 7.22 imports and loads your AIFFs as 24-bit / 48-kHz resolution. This s/w can export these AIFFs to 24-bit WAVs at 48 kHz. You can torrent WAVs in this hi-res format at bt.etree.org, and be done with it. Include a text file and a checksum file. Your source will get picked up from there by volunteers, and make it to GD's collection here, shortly. Even better, compress the WAVs into FLACs, using free conversion s/w such as Trader's Little Helper, and torrent in lossless FLACs.

You can also down-sample, down-convert, and export to 16-bit / 44.1 kHz FLACs in Samplitude, so people can make CD copies. If you include going this route for CDs, then you should fix the SBEs and create your etree torrent in Trader's Little Helper. Upload your torrent to the bt.etree.org site. It will get "picked up" from there. The bt.etree.org site requires fitting these FLAC files into a CD format distribution, for 16-bit / 44.1 format only. Text info files detailing sources and lineage are expected. You must include your checksum files when you upload the torrent. MD5 and FFP checksums can be created in TLH.
